Santa Maria Beach is located in Havana
Capital of Cuba and the country's administrative, political, cultural and scientific center, it is also the capital of two provinces: City of Havana and Havana. Though only around 280 square miles (727 square kilometers) in size-0.65 percent of the archipelago's total area.
The Old Havana and system of forts led UNESCO to declare it a part of world heritage in 1982. Founded on its present site in 1519, the settlement of San Cristobal de La Habana prospered mainly due to its bay, which was a natural port of call for ships sailing to and from the New World. Starting in 1634, because of its strategic location, San Cristobal de La Habana was considered the key to the New World-as attested to by royal letters patent-and the main defense of the West Indies.
The Cuban capital consists of an immense number of buildings in a wide range of architectural styles, built in the course of nearly five centuries. These styles range from the pre-baroque to the baroque, neo-Gothic, neoclassical, eclectic, art noveau and art-deco, to the modern.
Alejo Carpentier, one of Cuba's most famous authors, called it "the city of columns" and focused attention on its streets, which he considered a perennially rich show of life, humanity and contrasts that was bound to entertain any observer.
Over 14 kilometers of excellent beaches lie to the east of the Cuban capital. To the south, a green belt contributes to a healthful atmosphere.

“Best Beach.... ”
White sand and blue water..Stayed at the Hotel Alanitco in Sept/14...New owners as of April/14.. Go to the fall east side not as busy with the locals and much softer sand....enjoy.
“Perfect for Havana holidayers ”
We stayed in Havana for a week and on 2 days took trips to this beach. It makes way more sense to go out here - only 30 mins away, than to drive 2 hours to the plush resorts on Varadero beach. Playas de Este are the beaches that the locals use. It doesn't have all the fantastic facilities that... More
“Heavenly Beach! ”
We spent 6 weeks in Cuba and saw several beaches during this time (Trinidad, Varadero, Cayo Largo), but the Playa de Este was our unsurpassed highlight. We actually took photos of the beach which look as if they were edited, because they look almost too good to be true. Sadly, this was the first beach we went to, thus we... More
